Awake Oh Self

Awake Oh Self

In life’s dream,
soul sits in the eye—
perfection reflected
in the mirror of the world.

In dream’s life,
soul sits in the mind—
perfection arrayed
in the world of shadows.

But in dreamless sleep,
soul sleeps in the heart—
unexpressed perfection
without any form of projection.

Oh my self,
stay asleep while awake,
you are not the shadow of your dreams.
